    You forgot to mention the course that she is interested in.

    anyway, I'd say that Leicester uni is better in general than Lincoln and Coventry. but thats just me.

    Yep, the blank space is looking increasingly impressive.

    There's no need to be like that. Not everyone gets straight A's with little effort, and goes off to Oxbrigde.

    Leicester is the most respected in general out of those 3 uni's. I think its about 20th in the league tables.

    Lincoln is an awful uni, and if youre going anywhere near Coventry then you should try to get into Warwick.

    And you sound like an ass . Leicester isn't at all a bad university and Coventry is very good for certain courses, like Automotive Engineering.

    I'd advise your friend to work out what they want to do first and then look at which university would be best for them .

    I would think Leicester is the best out of those, it's a pretty decent uni from what I've heard.

    Leicester is definitely the best out of those, by quite a long way.

    Ive got 6 A grades at A Level,

    if i applied for a job, and so did someone from Lincoln University with a 2.2 and a levels DDE- who do you think they would believe was more intelligent?

    Just because you have a degree doesnt mean you are more intelligent that someone without one........

    But it depends on the job. A lot of jobs require a degree, and so the person with a degree would get the job over you, even if in your mind you were more intelligent.

    Actaully experience is just as important as well, degrees only really help for jobs that require a degree.

    Even then experience and attitude of the person counts a lot more than the university and classification. Employers hire people, not a degree certificate. Those days are long gone, even for the old boys group of people.
